Art Foundation Week 13

​Photo taken on replacement bus from Lewes to Three Bridges - intrigued by the sight of reflections on black screens. How much truth is there behind a screen, in a virtual reality?

Attended the Lumiere light show in Picadilly, London

Inspired by text - the distorsion of perceptions, ambiguosity of words and language - Ludwig Wittgeinstein

Short Film research continued...

Subconscious Password by Chris Landreth

Content: subconscious mind, what happens in someone’s head when they try to recall a memory – ‘inside out’?

Thoughts:

  • Stop motion?

  • Simple story line – highly personal – light hearted

Brain Hack by Joe White

Content: very hot topic - religion and its authenticity, experimental

Thoughts:

  • Manipulation of the audience: to engage them

  • Circular plot?

He Took His Skin Off For Me by Ben Aston

Content: relationships?

Thoughts:

  • Great make-up skills – almost too realistic for me

  • Focusing on one idea/facet of relationships and dramatising it to make the point

Between by Tim Bollinger

Content: abstract?

Thoughts:

  • Weird, highly obscure plot

  • Reverse/circular

  • By isolating specific imagery – eg pigeons, roman baths – Bollinger engages the audience and encourages them to try link these objects/metaphors – active ‘understanding of the plot’ – highly subjective

  • Pace- Slow motion: to dramatise the stillness, blurry/really fast scenes – build up tension

The Centrifuge Brain Project by Till Nowak

Content: surreal, avant-guard yet set in the past, about rollercoasters and science

Thoughts:

  • Made me think of the ‘Euthanasia Rollercoaster ride’ that I saw at the MACBA

  • Documentary style – aiming to educate, or give off an education vibe

  • Similar to brain hack to some extent

  • Less about the human experience, more about the science

Numbers by Robert Hloz

Content: futuristic, dystopian?,

Thoughts:

  • Made me think of the movie ‘In Time’ with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried – clever concept

  • Not complicating plot further – focusing on the two characters alone

  • Very coherent

A Truncated Story of Infinity by Paul Trillo

Content: possibilities /

Thoughts:

  • Positive, optimistic vibe – message – accept how things turn out?

  • Really liked the way it was filmed – inception – parallel worlds – focused on the story of one character alone

  • Happy, cheerful colours – overall very hipster
